Hello, people of the internet!
Da, moguće je - pišem recenziju. Mislim da ću sama sebi stalno nabijati grižnju savijesti što (opet) ne pišem češće - ali šta je tu je. Ne odustajem!
Uglavnom, čime bolje razbiti period nepisanja nego recenzijom palete sjenila. Znate i sami koliko ih volim i skupljam kao mali hrčak. Danas je na red došla relativno nova paleta u mojoj kolekciji - I ♥ Revolution Chocolate Rose Gold.

Yes, it is possible - I am writing a review. I think I'll always make myself feel guilty because (again) I don't write more often - but it is what it is. I won't give up!
Anyway, what's the better way to break the non-writing period than with a review of an eyeshadow palette. You know how much I love them and collect them like a little hamster. Today, a relatively new palette in my collection got its turn -  I ♥ Revolution Chocolate Rose Gold.

Iako piše I ♥ Makeup, brend si je malo izmjenio naziv u I ♥ Revolution, te vjerujem da svi već znate da je ovo sestra / brat / bliži rod brenda Makeup Revolution. Najpoznatiji su upravo po ovim "čokoladnim" paletama koje su dupe-ovi poznatijih i skupljih. Paleta dolazi u jednostavnom kartonskom pakiranju koji s prednje strane ima foliju, a sa stražnje se nalaze podaci o paleti i lista sastojaka.

Although it says I ♥ Makeup, the brand changed their name into I ♥ Revolution, and I believe you already know this is a little sister / brother / close relative of the brand Makeup Revolution. They are best known exactly for these "chocolate" palettes, which are dupes for more famous and more expensive ones. The palette comes in a simple cardboard packaging with a foil on the front, and information and list of ingredients on the back side. 

Sama paleta je izrađena od čvrste plastike, čvrsto se zatvara i sve skupa izlgleda jako kvalitetno, a dizajn čokolade u metalik nijansi rozog zlata joj daje dašak luksuza. Osim što prelijepo izgleda, ne mogu a da ne spomenem i miris - ova paleta (kao i njihova Chocolate Elixir, a pretpostavljam i druge) zaista miriše na čokoladu! Ne napadno i ružno, već zaista ugodno. Unutra se nalazi 16 sjenila i veliko ogledalo koje je jako praktično. Nijanse se kreću u roskastom spektru, sa ponekom zlatno/brončanom. Za ovu paletu kažu da je dupe za Huda Beauty rose gold paletu, onu prvu, s tim da se par nijansi razlikuje - no ne posjedujem Hudinu paletu, pa ne mogu reći više o tome.

The palette itself is made of hard plastic, it closes firmly and altogether looks really well made, and the metallic rose-gold chocolate design gives it a touch of luxury. In addition to its lovely looks, I can't fail to mention the smell - this palette (as well as their Chocolate Elixir, and presumably the other ones, too) really smells like chocolate! Not overbearingly and badly, but really nicely. There are 16 eyeshadows inside and a big mirror, which is really practical.  The shades are in a rosy specter, with a few golden/bronze ones. Users say that this palette is a dupe for Huda Beauty Rose Gold, the first one, with few different shades - but I don't own Huda's palette, so I can't say more about it.

Unutra se nalazi i folija s nijansama, koja nije pretjerano funkcionalna, a često se zna dogoditi da ju zagubim. Sjenila su odlično pigmentirana, osim dva koja su srednje pigmentacije. Sjana i glitter sjenila se najbolje nanose prstom, a za preciznije nanošenje može poslužiti i spužvasti aplikator. Mat nijanse su jako mekane, odlično surađuju sa bilo kojom vrstom četkica i lijepo se blendaju. Neke mat nijanse se više truse od drugih, no meni to ne predstavlja problem. Krenut ću slijeva ka desno:

There is also a foil with names inside, which is not really functional since I often throw misplace it. The eyeshadows have excellent pigmentation, apart from two which have somewhat medium pigmentation. The shimmery and glittery eyeshadows are best applied with fingers, and sponge applicator for the more precise application. The matte shades are pretty soft, work well with any kind of brush bristles and blend well. Some matte shades have more kick back than the other ones, but it doesn't pose a problem for me. I'll start from left to right:

Hold up - svjetlija zlatno-žuta nijansa, sa sitnim sjajnim česticama satenskog završetka. Osim preko za preko cijelog kapka može se koristiti i kao highlight nijansa, no u tu svrhu bih voljela da je mrvicu svjetlija. Pigmentacija je srednja, te se može nadograditi.
Cheque - svjetlija, topla bakarna nijansa metalik završetka. Sadrži više sitnih sjajnih čestica od prethodne i odlična je za preko cijelog kapka.
Barbie - spoiler odmah na početku - mislim da mi je ovo najdraža nijansa u paleti. Baza joj je roskasta i ima predivan zlatni odsjaj, baš je neka rozo-zlatna duochrome nijansa. Na fotografiji se i ne vidi koliko se lijepo presijava, ali vjerujte mi na riječ.
Shy - svijetla, hladna, gotovo siva taupe nijansa. Super je kao prijelazna nijansa u pregibu, te joj je pigmentacija više dolazi do izražaja s četkicom nego prstom. Minimalno se trusi.
Back up - tamnija smeđa nijansa sa izraženim hladnim podtonom. Odlična za vanjski kut oka ili smokey eye. Malo se više trusi od prethodne.

Hold up - light yellow-gold shade, with shiny micro particles and satin finish. In addition to using it on the entire lid, it can also be used as a highlight shade, although for that purpose I would like it to be a bit lighter. Pigmentation is medium, but buildable.
Cheque - lighter, warmer coppery shade with metallic finish. It contains more shiny particles than the previous one and is perfect to apply on the entire eyelid.
Barbie - spoiler at the beginning - I think this might be my favorite shade in the entire palette. The base is rosy and it has a gorgeous gold reflection, it looks like rosy-golden duochrome shade. Photos don't really show how beautifully it reflects the light, but trust me on that. 
Shy - light, cool, almost grey taupe shade. It is great as a transition shade in the crease, and its pigmentation is better when applied with brush than a finger. It has minimal kick back.
Back up - darker brown shade with prominent cool undertone. It's great for the outer corner or a smokey eye. It has a bit more kick back than the previous one.

Touch me - srednje tamna smeđa, brončana nijansa sa izraženim zelenkastim pod tonom. U pakiranju čak više vuče na maslinasto nego na smeđe. Sadrži malo krupnije sjajne čestice i ima metalik završetak. Nju sam zapravo najmanje koristila.
Dirty rich - bobičasta, gotovo crvena nijansa sa rozim pod tonom i metalik završetkom. Inače volim ovakve nijanse tako da mi se ona odmah našla u favoritima.
Gold digga - kako joj i ime kaže, ovo je srednje tamna zlatna nijansa - baš kao zlatni novčići. Također ima metalik završetak i odlično izgleda u cut crease tehnici.
Girl boss - ako mi je Barbie najdraža sjajna nijansa, ova mi je definitivno najdraža mat nijansa. Srednje tamna smeđa sa rozim pod tonom, pomalo mauve. Odlična je za definiciju u pregibu, a ponekad ju koristim i samostalno preko cijelog kapka u smokey eye tehnici.
Side-chic - srednje tamna bobičasta nijansa, gotovo bordo. Kao i Girl Boss i ona mi je odlična za definiciju u pregibu kapka.
My own - svjetlija, topla smeđa - mislim da je nijasa karamele najbolje opisuje. Odlična je kao prijelazna nijansa u pregibu. Također joj je pigmentacija bolja kada se nanese četkicom.

Touch me - medium dark brown, bronze shade with prominent greenish undertone. It looks more green than brown in the packaging. It contains a bit bigger shiny particles and has a metallic finish. I actually used it the least.
Dirty Rich - berry, almost red shade with pink undertone and metallic finish. I generally love these shades so this one found itself in my favorites immediately.  
Gold digga - as its name says, this is a medium dark gold shade - just like a gold coin. It also has a metallic finish and it looks awesome in a cut crease technique.
Girl boss - if Barbie is my favorite shimmery shade, this one is definitely my favorite matte shade. It is medium brown brown shade with pink undertone, somewhat mauve. It is excellent for definition in the crease, and sometimes I use it by itself over entire eyelid in the smokey eye technique.
Side-chic - medium dark berry shade, almost burgundy. As a Girl Boss, this one is also great for a definition in the crease.
My own -  lighter, warm brown - I think a color of caramel describes it best. It is great as a transition shade. Also, it's pigmentation is better when applied with a brush.

Hard work - ovo je jedna od dvije glitter nijanse. Radi se o izrazito žutoj, zlatnoj nijansi sa puno sitnijih i krupnijih sjajnih čestica. Nju sam većinom koristila kao highlight u unutarnjem kutu oka.
Luxe - druga glitter nijansa u paleti. Radi se o predivnoj breskvastoj nijansi i ona je još jedan favorit. Većinom sam ju koristila preko prve trećine kapka i predivno sjaji.
Uh-oh - "prljavo" roza nijansa, odlična kao prijelazna. Malo se trusi. Na swatchu ne izgleda dobro pigmentirana, ali njena pigmentacija dolazi do izražaja kad se nanese četkicom.
Not yours -mat ružičasta, ciklama nijansa. Nju sam jako malo koristila pa nemam puno reći o njoj.
Independent - svijetla žućkasta nude nijansa, meni se gotovo stopi s tenom. Dobra je kao bazna nijansa.

Hard work - this is one of two glittery shades. It is a distinctly yellow, gold shade with a lot of bigger and smaller shiny particles. I mostly used it as a highlight shade in the inner corner.
Luxe - second glittery shade in the palette. It is a gorgeous peachy shade and it is another favorite of mine.
Uh-oh - dusty rose shade, great as a transition shade. It has minimal kick back. It doesn't look well pigmented on the swatch, but its pigmentation is better when applied with a brush.
Not yours - matt pink, cyclamen shade. I used it very little so I don't have much to say about it.
Independent - bright yellowish nude shade, it almost blends in with my complexion. It is good as a base shade.

Ja sam jako zadovoljna paletom. Omjer cijene i kvalitete sjenila je odličan. Pošto volim roskaste/crvenkaste nijanse, ova paleta mi se odmah svidjela i često ju koristim, a kako sadrži sve nijanse za potpuni look, rado ju nosim i na putovanja. Iako bih voljela da ima nijansu bijelog zlata za highlight i još neku tamniju smeđu nijansu, ne zamjeram joj to puno. U svakom slučaju imate moje tople preporuke za ovu paletu, a evo i dva looka.

I am really satisfied with this palette. The price to quality ratio is excellent. Since I really like pinkish/reddish tones, this palette caught my attention immediately and I use it very often, and since it contains all the shades needed for an entire look, I gladly take it with me when traveling. Although I would like it to have a white gold shade for highlighting and another dark brow, I don't mind it much. In any case, You have my warm recommendations for this palette, and here are two looks.

Za ovaj look su korištene nijanse // For this look I used - Uh-oh, Girl Boss, Back up, Luxe, Hard Work, Hold up.

Za ovaj look su korištene // For this look I used - Not yours, Barbie + Bubble-gum, Chesnut (Chocolate Elixir paleta)
